Start it @kbc & Straffe Madammen want to boost female entrepreneurship in the Belgian start-up scene. The aim is not only to increase the economic potential of the country, but also to bring about a fundamental change in attitudes in the business world. Time to put our Female Founders in the picture. Let's ask Jasna, Founder of Jasna Rok, a few questions ...
Why did you become entrepreneur?
It wasn't meant to be to start my own company. With my graduation collection: "Fashion On Brainwaves" which combines fashion and technology I won some awards, was asked for events, the rollercoaster started ... I had the feeling I needed to follow my passion and ambition to digitalize the fashion industry. Because nobody else was doing this in Belgium, I started Jasna Rok.
What has surprised you the most during your career as an entrepreneur?
YOU have to believe in it. Find the right people around you, a good team and you will be amazed how fast you can build up something out of zero. Innovation and disruption are very important and lead me to create a new business plan, growing sustainable and realize things people didn't think we're able to happen in a small timeframe.
What is your advice for someone who wants to start her/his own entrepreneurial career?
Don't put a limit on your ambition and dreams. Just make it happen.
